Sprint or T-Mobile Need Quick Help Please
Thanks for reading this:
I live in So. California. I do not travel much outside of the state aside for visits to Las Vegas and Dallas.
The company I work for offers a special price on Sprint PCS plans with a free Sanyo 8100 phone. The prices are 500 minutes @ $33.75 or 300 minutes @ $26.50.
I currently use T-Mobile (Nokia 3565) and haven't had any huge issues with the service. I am on a 39.99 plan that includes 600 minutes.I almost always stay within my plans minutes .. usually under by about 150 or so.
The Sprint promotion at work ends very soon. Therefore, does it make sense to change to Sprint? I have never used Sprint so how does i...
blah blah blah
who cares about verizon.
the question was sprint or t-mobile.
if he wanted to roam on the nations largest analog netowrk he would have asked.
back to the question, imo stay with t-mo.
If I do change (I have till this Monday) it will be based solely on price. I also found out I can get a Sprint 700 anytime minute plan for $36. that is $4. less than I pay for T-Mobiles 600 minute plan.
I also have asked several people at work who switched during the last promotion and most are happy with Sprint, though they all say customer service sucks.
As I mentioned I haven't had any real problems with T-Mobile service or reps so that is what makes the decision so hard for me. It isn't like I can justify it by saying their reps are rude or I have X amount of dropped calls .. as no problems at ...
sprint: more minutes per cost but highly possible to experience bad cust service
t-mo: less minutes per cost but known cust service
lastly, are you under contract right now under t-mo? if so you would have to pay the etf. if not you could always port out to sprint and try them out during their trial period, if it's not to your liking, then port back to t-mo.
Plus, T-Mobile has their new Get More plan for $39.99 until April 19th in selected areas. Los Angeles is one of the areas. For $39.99 you get 1000 anytime minutes, and Unlimited Nights and Weekends...including roaming and national long distance. It is basically their $59.99 plan for $20.00 less. A great deal.
I had been grandfathered into T-Mobile's $39.99 "Three Day Weekend" rate...which Friday's were free. I thought about it and switched to the new 1000 minute plan. That's 45 per day of prime time talk time....
I came to California from Ohio last year and kept Sprint. Well, I was having tons of reception problems with Sprint, dropped calls and horrible customer service which got worse by the day.
With T-mobile, my experience so far has been great. I finally have reception in my office (it is perfect), I have a great new phone for a very reasonable price, and my two interactions with customer T-mobile's customer service have been perfect, including the porting of my number.
Advice from me: don't change carriers, stay with T-mobile.
And thanks to every...
As the poster points out above penny for penny my rate is better with T-Mobile and it just became even more of a value. I upgraded to the 39.99 1000 anytime minutes with unlimited nights and weekends. This is close to double the minutes I use and even beats Sprints 700 discount plan that I had access to.
Thanks again to those who replied.
